With the big one, Holiday Ale Festival under our belts, and a few other awesome holiday craft beer gatherings such as Roscoe’s Holiday Beer Summit, under our outstretched belts, we’ve come to a stark reality. It’s not even winter yet and there is still plenty more seasonal beers for us to drink. So, let’s get down to business and gear up for the second annual St. John’s Winter Beer Festival at Plew’s Brews.
Organizer Trevor Thurston Beers points us to specialty pours at this year’s Winter Fest like Nostradamus Strong Brown, Stone Russian Imperial Stout, Uinta Baltic Porter (with brandy soaked oak chips in the secondary), Great Divide Oak-Aged Yeti, St. Bernardus Christmas Ale, Schooner Exacts’ Hoppy the Woodsman (a winter warmer aged in bourbon barrels), and a handful of specialty Oakshire brews. But that’s not it, friends, not even close…

If you attended last year’s winter party at Plew’s, you certainly know that it’s a load of awesomeness! Here’s the full details for this three day holiday beer extravaganza:
Twas the week before Christmas and Plew’s was in action,
The creatures were stirring, winter beer is the passion.
